I’ve been looking in my company for other jobs. While there are some vacancies, those that I qualify for still have the same challenges and headaches. I’ve also been checking job postings at my former school. There’s not much there that looks interesting though. I’m pretty well resigned to the fact that whatever job I take outside my company will be a lower paying job. But I’m really hoping that I don’t have to work the long hours anymore or deal with the stress. My health should at least be better.
I’m also certain whatever job I take won’t be in the IT. I’m not a technical guy I just work in the IT industry. So I’m hoping my general skills will be transferable. I still need to update and polish the resume. My sister has several versions she uses depending on the job and what skills she wants to highlight. I’m not there yet but hope to be in a month or two.
At the rate my company is letting go people, I’m sure my turn will come soon. I’ve been fortunate so far. But who knows.
So… does anyone want to hire me? I will remain anonymous of course. Although the only occupations out there that require a mask are bank robber, hockey goalie, S&M master, super heroes like Batman and a surgeon (when he is in surgery of course). Or maybe I’ll move to Asia where wearing a mask is a bit more common. Anyways… I don’t come cheap. So be prepared to open your wallet.
